There was not one thing I would change about our stay at the Hilton Bayfront. Everyone from the valet, check in to the breakfast attendant was so genuinely friendly and helpful, that instantly put my in a great vacation mood. The breakfast buffet is phenomenal, even our picky toddler went back for seconds and one of the cooks made him...

The Bayview Hilton is a great hotel, right on the San Diego waterfront, very comfortable, friendly staff and good value; some aspects of the hotel left me a bit confused - why no access to some of the restaurants from inside the hotel, and the main public floors are odd in that when you use the lower level entrance you...

Stayed for one week. Plenty of restaurant options and even a Starbucks. Pool area was very nice with seating and heaters around the pool bar. Easy Boardwalk stroll to seaport village. A bit expensive but that's San Diego in general. The room was ok but the housekeeping staff were very nice and accommodating.

World-class service from the moment I stepped out of the Uber ride. I was greeted with a huge welcoming smile by a Female Porter who greeted me, immediately asking if I'd like a refrigerator in my room and even went back to get me new room keys while I relaxed in my luxurious room with a view when the original...

The hotel is lovely! Nice lobby area and comfortable seating. The Odysea bar in the lobby is a nice place to meet and have a few drinks. My room was very clean and the view was breathtaking.

I had such a Wonderful experience in each part of the Hotel... From the Concierge to the bartender my bartender Paul was Awesome. I had such a relaxing time at the pool. I give this Hotel a five star for the convenience to the San Diego Convention Center and walking distance to the Gaslamp district.

I stayed here for a week during a convention and this hotel was one of the closest to the convention center. Because of the conference the hotel room was ridiculously expensive while it is just an ordinary hilton room including an average bathroom. The music in the lobby is very loud and annoying.

This is your typical Hilton with a few drawbacks. The pedestrian entrance is very obscure and located across from the parking structure. It is not an entrance that one would easily locate. Then you have to go up an escalator or elevator to get to the lobby level. There is a drive up entrance on the second level used mostly...

We stayed here for a week during a convention. The rooms are very expensive-- not very good value. No executive lounge. Not very many amenities. Housekeeping spotty. Pool was OK but nothing special. We had good meals in the restaurants at a reasonable price. est thing about it is the closeness to the Convention Center and Old Town.
